I've Got Worms Again
Wednesday, July 28, 2010
I ran into a friend yesterday who was amazed at how much weight I have lost. I usually don't notice it so I was surprised that she did since I still wear baggy clothes most of the time. She is a weight conscious person so maybe that makes her more observant. I still look fat to me but then I was always thin prior to menopause. I sometimes talk to this friend online but I usually only briefly refer to the fact that I'm still on a diet and exercise program and that I am slowly losing weight. For me, losing weight is just a part of my life and I usually talk about the goofy stuff I always talk about here. I sometimes wonder if I would lose more if I would concentrate on it more but I don't want to become fixated on it either - what I refer to as the Diet/Exercise Freaks. We all know the type. They turn being healthy into a psychotic addiction. LOL. I had a friend who did this. She had surgery and lost a lot of weight and unlike other people who incorporate it into their life she became fixated on diet/exercise/weight loss. She had poor self esteem and an addictive personality to begin with and this became her new addiction. All of her other interests disappeared. She could not talk about anything else but herself and her diet and exercise program. All of her friends were very happy for her but she turned into a total monster. She was married but became flirtatious and later promiscuous. Her husband left her and lots of her friends ended up dropping her. She didn't seem to know why and no one wanted to tell her. You couldn't even eat with her because she would analyze your food even though some of us didn't need to diet at the time like me. It was misery. She ended up gaining a significant amount of weight back. So I try to be careful that I don't fall into this trap. I don't bring my weight loss up unless people ask. This is our place to talk about it here where people are like minded. We have to realize that we are more that the amount we weigh on a scale. Life is about balance. Please don't let this become your whole life.
My brand new bras are already too big. I'm so angry. I specifically bought them so I could use them a long time and figured that as I lost I could use the tighter hooks but I'm already using the tighter hooks now. I tried the next smaller size when I bought them and it was too tight. I have not been losing any more weight unless my scale is broken and the bras are brand new and don't seem to be stretching. The cup size is fine. The girth is the problem. I spent a ton of money for these bras and it's irritating. My weight must be redistributing or I was retaining fluid when I bought them. Next time I will buy the skin tight bra.
I've got tomato horn worms. LOL. Maybe I should clarify that they are in the garden before someone fears I have an STD or some disgusting intestinal parasites. LOL. Tomato horn worms are nature's equivalent of the crabs. I hate them. They are so gross. Big green things the size of your finger and you have to pull them off and crush them and green slime squirts every where. Yuk. They bite too.
I stepped on a stick today and it boomeranged up and gouged my leg. I also found a tick stuck in that was extremely tiny. My husband removed it and he said it was already dead. Take that!!
I made tons of baked mixed veggies from the garden today and ate one of my peaches. Yum!!!
